Tesasini Park is a waterfront park located on the north bank of the Ottawa River next to the Chaudières Bridge. It is the second of three parks being built on the shores of the Ottawa River, as part of the Zibi development. 

Revitalizing the islands and shorelines of the historic Ottawa River and increasing public access to these places are among the NCC’s priorities. 

About the park

Tesasini means “flat rock in Algonquin. 

The park features exposed bedrock shelves, a universally accessible pathway and two lookouts. It is open year-round, but most of the bedrock shelves are only accessible when water levels are low. 


  • Washrooms: Not currently available. 
  • Parking: Paid parking is available at Zibi. 
  • Universal accessibility: The pathways are universally accessible. 

The park design is the result of a partnership with the Algonquin Anishinabe, Zibi, the City of Ottawa, Ville de Gatineau and Energy Ottawa.
